From leaky faucets to clogged drains and pipes, your bathroom’s tub and shower issues can cause frustration and interruptions in your busy life. A shower or bathtub in need of repair can cause unsightly staining, waste costly water resources and lead to utility bill spikes. It is usually more cost-effective to repair your tub than to replace it. Replacing a bathtub can cost well over $3000, so bathtub repair is a much better deal. You may also be tempted to purchase a DIY kit from your local DIY store or hardware store. There’s a reason these kits cost less than $20: you get what you pay for. It is almost impossible to get a durable repair that also matches the color of your tub without a professional performing the repair.
